Enter the total pressure and total area into the calculator to determine the thrust.
Pressure Thrust Formula
The following formula is used to calculate thrust from pressure.
T = P * A
- Where T is the thrust (N)
- P is the pressure (N/m^2)
- A is the area (m^2)
To calculate thrust from pressure, multiply the pressure by the area.
How is pressure converted to thrust?
Thrust is a unit of force, and pressure is a unit of force per area, so to convert the pressure to a unit of force you must multiply by the area.
How to calculate thrust from pressure?
The following example outlines how to calculate thrust from pressure.
First, determine the total pressure. In this example, the total pressure is measured to be 500 N/m^2.
Next, determine the total area that pressure is acting on. In this case, the total area is calculated to be 20 m^2.
Finally, calculate the thrust using the formula above:
T = P * A
T = 500 * 20
T = 10,000
